Chistmas Card for Teacher


Ooops, I'd forgotten Grandson had asked for a card for his teacher so I used this tag which was made to be just that - a tag for a challenge.

Once again a tall DL - got a pack of these so need to get using, LOL.
Free papers again from craft mag, edged with gold pen. The tag is one from a pair of jeans and is popped up with foam pads.

The tag is quite basic compared to some but it still took a while to do....and I like the result :)
I first painted front and back with white paint - remember it was just going to be a 'free standing' tag so needn't have done the back.
I then painted with lovely cheapo gold paint added glitter then stuck on some crumpled tissue paper and the greeting image with watered down PVA glue.
More gold paint, more glue and more glitter.
An organza bow, a glittery snowflake and computer generated banner with teacher's name and I thought that would do but it looked very bare and corners didn't work or any other embellies so after leaving it alone for an hour I had  a sudden 'ping' of inspiration and added two 'ribbon' strips cut from another of the free papers.
